I had terrible experience with my surgery by Dt. Abidin. I had sinus and devoated septum surgery. Not only I still have deviated septum but I ended up with severe nerve damage and turbinate dysfunction that has made lifr living hell. Look up empty nose syndrome before doing any surgery to your nose. I was not told risk of empty noae syndrome. I regret my decision

Dr Abidin is super relatable and takes all anxiety out of addressing health concerns. An incredibly skilled doctor not only in surgery but bedside manner. He performed sinus surgery on me and Recovery has been a breeze. Absolutely no pain, no swelling, and no bruising! Just an awesome doctor all around.

He is a personable, intelligent, caring professional who was able to fix my issue the first time with near zero side effects. I absolutely recommend him if you have any E, N, or T issues.

Dr. Abidin is stellar. His team bent over backwards to see me prior to starting an MBA, and with a limited timeframe, he was able to fit me in for several consultations, a CT scan, and balloon sinuplasty, within 3 weeks. That's unheard of for a specialist of Dr. Abidin's caliber. Dr. Abidin was caring, patient, thorough, and had a very welcome sense of humor. He even battled my insurance company for me. And now I can finally breathe out of my nose! I highly recommend him. Thank you, Dr. Abidin!

I came to Dr. Abidin having had 2 previous sinus surgeries. He recommended that I have another and explained the procedure and how he did it different and better than everyone else. After my surgery I healed quickly and my stuffy nose issues were solved at last. I still had lingering allergies after that that I took sinus drops and shots for that may have not been needed. Some of the office staff is great, but I had some billing issues with others and concerns they were upselling me so be aware.

He seemed nice enough, but he wound up submitting about $40K of billings for nothing. I hate to say it, but we got taken.

Dr. Abidin performed surgery to remove the bags under my eyes and the sack of loose skin under my chin. The operation was quick, relatively painless and more than a year after the procedure I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Dr. Abidins manner was such that I had complete trust in his ability to produce the results I wanted and that trust was not misplaced. I would add that the cost of the procedure was far less than I had expected. He's also a really nice guy I'd highly recommend.

Simply, Dr. Michael R. Abidin is the BEST. My wife has been suffering from severe sinuses for years & years on daily basis. Dr. Abidin performed a small surgery with consistent follow ups. Thank GOD she is wayyyyy better and the pain is gone. It was a very hard decision for us to make but we trusted his judgement and everything went well. What I really admire about Dr. Abidin is his generosity and patience. Although our insurance was expired,the Dr.was able to see my wife twice with no charges

Great doctor. Dr Abidin doesn't stop until he's fixed your illness/complaint. Our entire family (6 adults) has been his patient for allergies, chronic sinus problems, surgeries etc over the last 12yrs; nothing was ever left unresolved. The entire staff and other doctors at Metro ENT are all great as well.
